Teaching Excellence Lecture Series...NY TImes Bestselling Author Paul Tough
Wednesday, April 24, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Why do some children succeed while others fail?
Here's a hint: It could have more to do with character than intelligence.
Join us for the first in the Hilsborough Education Foundation's Teaching Excellence Lecture Series and meet New York Times bestselling author Paul Tough. A leading expert on child education and parenting, Paul Tough's new book How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiousity, and the Hidden Power of Character is a provacative and profoundly hopeful book that has the potential to change how we raise our children, run our schools, and construct our social safety net.
So save the date. It could very well change your understanding of childhood itself.
